Climate change

Climate change, a long-term shift in global weather patterns and average temperatures, is one of the most pressing challenges addressed by the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). It is directly targeted by SDG 13 (Climate Action), which calls for urgent measures to combat climate change and its impacts. However, climate change also cuts across virtually all other SDGs. For instance, it threatens to undermine progress towards SDG 2 (Zero Hunger) by disrupting agricultural production, and exacerbates problems of clean water availability, a concern of SDG 6 (Clean Water and Sanitation). It also impacts SDG 3 (Good Health and Well-being) due to increased heatwaves and spread of vector-borne diseases. Furthermore, climate change can induce migration and conflicts, affecting SDG 16 (Peace, Justice, and Strong Institutions). Hence, tackling climate change is integral to achieving the SDGs.

This Article supports SDGs 3 and 13 by comprehensively assessing the future out-of-hospital cardiac arrest morbidity burden related to non-optimal temperatures, heatwaves, and cold spells in Northern China under different climate change scenarios.
This Article supports SDGs 3 and 13 by identifying gaps in air pollution monitoring and regulation and by proposing potential mitigation policies.

This Article supports SDGs 3 and 13 by identifying knowledge gaps in the relationship between harmul algal bloom aerosols and human health.
This article describes the effects of climate and environmental change on viticulture in heroic & steep slope settings
Heavy duty freight transportation is a key part of global transportation, but is a large contributor to growing CO2 emissions. Here the authors design an on-board system for heavy duty vehicles to capture CO2 as it is released. This supports SDGs 7 (reducing CO2 emissions toward clean energy), 9 (modifications to existing vehicles to mitigate carbon emissions) and 13 (reducing emissions that contribute to climate change).
This article This Article supports SDGs 9, 11 and 13 by looking at the case of FuelEU maritime as an example of policy change for decarbonisation of international maritime transport.
